Song: Weakness Artist: McRad
“I must have heard this song for the first time in the late nineties, when I was like 16 or 17, or somewhere around that age, when I was into trails. It was the first song on SCUM 1201 (Watch that here) and every time I listen to this it takes me back to that era. Weakness was one of the tracks on McRad’s album ‘Absence Of Sanity’ which was first released in 1983 – The year I was born! McRad founder Chuck Treece was actually a professional skateboarder for Santa Cruz, Airwalk and Powell Peralta, and McRad tracks were used in a few Powell Peralta videos, namely Propaganda, Ban This and Public Domain. A lot of McRad tracks are kind of reminiscent of Bad Brains, one of my other favourites. Bands like this were pretty much my introduction to punk music, and their use in classic BMX and skateboarding videos when I was growing up was certainly hugely influential in what I’m into nowadays.“
